Booked an excursion with Nexus Tours at the Riu Bambu. For the most part the excursion was great except for two major points. Point ONE: Each stop on the tour we encountered locals trying their hardest to sell us things at inflate costs (80 times higher then the resort gift shop). I always try to help out the locals but...

My husband and I went south for a weekWe bought two excursions for the week we spent in the DR from the Nexus Tours rep at our hotel. The first was a city tour with the cable car. First, I must say, the cable car made the whole excursion 100x better than it would have otherwise been. I would have... More

stay away from the excursions that sunwing sells on the plane because on the ground they do not back the tours up. Bought a fishing trip and they told us that they don't deal with them and we didn't buy the tour from them.I said it was bought on the plane. They didn't care. the transfer was 35 mins late.....

We did this tour last week - good tour - guide Matheus was FANTASTIC! We started off at a supermarket in Puerto Plata where he gave us the info on rum, coffee and vanilla. Best prices we saw anywhere were here. We went to a jewelry factory where they made amber and larimar jewlery - good quality stuff if you... More

This was the biggest waste of money on our whole trip. First of all the snorkeling at paradise island was absolutely fantastic. You can get this by just booking a snorkeling trip there either through nexus or with the local taxi drivers. The vip promised champagne in the middle of the ocean, it was, in fact, pear juice!! The lobster... More

Not only do you see the city up close, you are able to shop in their supermarket for incredible prices on Rum/Vanilla/Coffee. At fraction of the prices anywhere else. The Lari-mar Factory was amazing and you can purchase items with no mark ups. At the hotel a $85 item was listed at $190 for the exact same quality. The visit... More

We attended several tours with Nexus, such as Bavaro Splash, we also visited the Coco Bongo disco, La hacienda and Saona Island and we had a really great time. Our favourite ones were the La Hacienda (especially the buggie driving and the zipline) and the Bavaro splash (speedboats and diving). We organised the trips in our hotel, Vista Sol, with... More

We booked a tour with a nexus tour guy at the Chic resort by Royalton Punta Cana. He promised us whale watching, horsebackriding and a waterfall in a daytrip. When we were picked up the tourguide told us that the tour did not include horsebackriding and the waterfall, not enough time! Just the whalewatching and lunch at a little island... More
